"We had an excellent experience with Tasha. She was quick to respond to our questions and easy to schedule. Her prop selection was great and she even made a little stuffie especially for our shoot. The pictures came out even better than expected. We shot during Covid-19 and felt very safe with all the precautions taken. Will definitely be using her again for baby #2."


"Our family has been fortunate to know Tasha for years. Tasha has taken our yearly family photos, maternity photos and most recently newborn photos. Tasha goes above and beyond to make your vision come to life! Or you can let her creativity go wild and you will not be disappointed with the final result. Our most recent pictures were of our precious rainbow baby. Tasha understood the significance of his arrival and captured that in every picture. Tasha is great with my 11 year old son, she always manages to get just the right picture that shows his personality in all its glory! While managing my husband who begrudgingly agrees to family pictures once a year! Tasha’s work is proudly displayed throughout our house, I would highly recommend her to capture the moments you don’t want to forget!"


"Dreadon Studios (Tasha) took my maternity and newborn/family photos and they came out so amazing! Well above expectations. She is extremely professional and easy to work with. I was so impressed with how well she knows how to pose people to make sure they look their best in the photo. I plan on using Dreadon Studios for my son's first birthday pictures as well. I am so happy that I have such beautiful photos that captured the beautiful memories to look back on for years to come."


"Tasha put in the extra time, energy and creativity for our newborn photo session compared to other photographers we have used in the past. We adore our pictures and will treasure them for years to come. I recommend ordering photos through her to get the best quality, the photos look like artwork on our wall. Our family photos will continue to be taken by Tasha, I highly recommend!"


"Our family had such a great experience working with Dreadon studios. The owner, Tasha was super easy to work with and was able to wrangle our wild kids into some great lifestyle photos both indoor and outside! The prints we ordered look beautiful in our home and the quality is fantastic. Highly recommend for anyone looking for a lifestyle photographer."


"Obsesssssed!! The best newborn photographer in the area. She makes the whole process absolutely seamless. Highly recommend!"
